We can help: ‘Contactless’ legal services
As the UK begins to ease lockdown restrictions, we understand you may be nervous about face-to-face meetings for some time to come. Many of our legal services are ‘contactless’, meaning you can progress a matter with us by email, phone and/or video call, without the need for an appointment at our offices.
We’re here to help, so if you have any queries about our ‘contactless’ services, please get in touch by phone, email or live chat.
If you’re planning for the future, we can take your instructions and advise you over the phone or video call (FaceTime, Zoom etc.), without the need for a face-to-face appointment. If you would like to make a Will or a Lasting Power of Attorney, your lawyer will explain the documents to you over the phone and ensure you fully understand the implications.
Any documents requiring a signature will be posted to you and you will be required to source your own witnesses – visit our latest blog for more details on finding suitable independent witnesses.
We can offer a ‘contactless’ service from initial quote to completion. Your conveyancer will progress matters by phone or email, depending on your preferences. We can also arrange video calls if required.
Copies of your ID will be required – your conveyancer will advise you on the type and format of ID we can accept.
When you’re ready to exchange contracts, your conveyancer will explain the legal implications to you via a phone call. We will then send the paperwork to you by post or email for you to sign in the presence of an independent witness (please comply with social distancing).
Completion will be arranged over the phone with your instructions.
If you are considering divorce or separation, looking for advice about an issue relating to your children, or need urgent help to ensure your safety and that of your children, we can progress your case by telephone, email or video call.
We recognise it can be difficult to talk to us confidentially during lockdown, so we can arrange to call you at a specific time if preferred. We can post or email documents to you as you prefer.
The Court system is still operating, and most hearings are held by conference call. There is currently no need for you to attend Court.
All personal injury cases can be progressed from start to finish without the need for a face-to-face appointment, so no matter your location, we can help.
Once you’ve contacted us, your details will be taken via an initial phone call, then matters will be progressed by phone or email. Documents can be signed online using a secure platform, or papers can be posted to your address.
Your case will be progressed as usual, without the need for face-to-face contact. Your lawyer will be guided by your preferences for telephone or email contact. We can also arrange video calls.
